    Quick and Nutritious Breakfast and Lunch Ideas for Busy Breastfeeding Mums

    Breastfeeding is an amazing journey, but it's also a demanding one on your body, meaning you need extra nutrients and energy to keep up with your body's needs for this and for your postpartum healing. 
    And yet, there is never a more busy and tiring time than that of being a new mum and I remember first hand what it was like to not even feel like I had the time nor the energy to feed myself right.
    However, I wish I knew back then what I know now about the importance of postpartum nutrition for not just overall postpartum health but also it's importance role it plays in breastfeeding success. 
    It's especially important to fuel your body right from the start of each day so you set yourself up for health success, yet I know as busy, exhausted mums the early times of the days are when we struggle to do this the most!

    But mums, it doesn't need to be difficult or complicated to make small changes that can have big nutritional, health and breastfeeding success impacts, so I've put together some quick, easy, and nutritious meal ideas for breakfast and lunch that are perfect for breastfeeding mothers no matter how busy you are!

    These meals are not only delicious but are also packed with essential nutrients to support your health and your baby's growth.

    Breakfast Ideas:

    1. Overnight Oats with Berries and Nuts: Prepare this the night before for a hassle-free morning. Mix rolled oats with your choice of milk, yogurt, and a drizzle of honey. Add in some berries for antioxidants and nuts for a healthy dose of fats.
    2. Spinach and Cheese Omelette: Eggs are a great source of protein and choline, which is essential for brain health. Toss in some spinach for iron and cheese for calcium, making it a perfect start to your day.
    3. Gluten Free Toast with Avocado and Smoked Salmon: Avocado is rich in healthy fats, vital for your baby's brain development. Smoked salmon adds omega-3 fatty acids and protein, making this a power-packed breakfast.

    Lunch Ideas:

    1. Quinoa Salad with Chickpeas and Veggies: Quinoa is a complete protein, and when combined with chickpeas and your favorite veggies, it makes for a nutrient-dense lunch. Dress it up with a lemon vinaigrette for an extra zing.
    2. Turkey and Cheese Wrap with Mixed Greens: Use a gluten free/spelt wrap, lean turkey slices, and your favorite cheese. Add some mixed greens for added vitamins and minerals. This wrap is easy to eat even when you’re on the go.
    3. Lentil Soup with Gluten Free Bread: Lentils are an excellent source of iron and protein. Pair a hearty lentil soup with a slice of gluten free bread for a comforting and filling lunch.

    These meal ideas are designed to be simple, quick, and nutritionally balanced, especially for breastfeeding mums and if you wanted to add extra milk-boosting goodness to any, you could also simply add a sprinkle of our Boost Blend to any of these quickly and easily too!

    Remember, taking care of your nutritional needs is crucial during this special phase of life.

    Enjoy these delicious meals and the wonderful journey of motherhood!
